BLACKWOOD, N.J. (CBS) -– A Gloucester Township teen was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly tearing up local football fields with his truck.
According to the Gloucester Township Police Department, 19-year-old Kyle Chute was arrested Wednesday afternoon for Criminal Mischief and Reckless Driving.

The public works employees reported that a vehicle had driven onto the football fields at the Marge Martin Sports Park at 425 Woodbury Turnersville Road. They claimed that the truck did “donuts” on several parts of the field, causing severe damage.

The video also recorded the truck’s license plate, allowing police to trace the vehicle back to Chute’s residence on the 100 block of East Court in Blackwood, N.J.
Chute was charged by Gloucester Township Police and released on a summons.
